Tina Claffey - PORTAL 

Virtual Exhibition 

Lichens become enchanted forests, mystical goblets appear that are fit for otherworldly kings and queens. Tentacles of carnivorous sundews poise like a cobra ready to strike, while wondrous caterpillars snooze on ancient mosses. Immerse yourself in scenes within the bog that defy your sense of reality, like portals to ancient worlds that co-exist with us.


Tina Claffey, award winning photographer & author of 'Tapestry of Light', loves to get ‘lost’ in the bogs, eskers and wetlands of Ireland with her macro lens. The macro lens allows her to capture what cannot be seen by the naked eye, rendering the ordinary extraordinary.

All of the images on exhibit are available as a limited edition series of 20 framed or 20 unframed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308 archival paper.

Order Forms for prints available HERE Order from Birr Theatre by contacting 057 91 22911 weekdays 1:00pm-5:30pm.
